2017 Best Kids’ Go-Karts

Boy wearing karting helmetWhat could possibly be more fun than whizzing down the road or racing around a track in a go kart? Mmmmm – I can’t think of a thing. 🙂 In the last several years, the “best of” go karts for kids have evolved into some pretty nifty ways to get around and match up in some friendly racing against opponents.

What’s here: On this page is a list of the ten best go karts for kids through the 2017 Christmas holiday season and into 2017 – both electric and “kid powered” karts are included for various ages. Rankings for the list are given based on popularity (which ones are selling the most), and among those, which are getting the highest ratings from the kids that ride them and their parents.

For shoppers: For each of the go karts listed here, one or more online shopping resource is recommended to buy it online. The merchants chosen are hand-picked for pricing, product availability and for having reputations as having safe and secure shopping. Links to product reviews are also provided, where available.

The Razor Ground Force Drifter Fury comes in right at 1st place among the top 10 go karts for kids this year.

The Fury is a fierce ride-on with a (literally) flashy spark bar that sends shimmers behind riders. There are top speeds of 12 miles-per-hour on slick, smooth-rollin’ rear wheels, but the front wheels have gripping traction for awesome, sidewalk-carving drifts.

My personal favorite among the 2017 ten best kids’ go-karts is the Nerf Battle Racer.

I was baffled, stunned, and temporarily amazed that NERF makes ride-ons. But the Battle Racer is SO cool. For backyard combats between best buds, this ride-on is a sturdy-framed racer with 4 compartments for NERF blasters and a dart holder.

The Razor Crazy Cart is the first of a few returning favorites among the top go karts for kids for 2017 and into 2017.

The Crazy Cart is exactly what the name suggests. So invest in a helmet and some elbow/knee pads, moms. This Razor classic reaches 12 miles-per-hour before spinning with the help of a drift bar. The caster wheels are no-slip anti-tip.

Making it to the next spot on the list – Razor Dune Buggy.

The Dune Buggy is a new favorite of mine because of the safety cage around the bottom of the racer. Of course, helmets and pads are still a good idea. But this one quickly reaches a powerful, quiet 10 miles-per-hour.

5. Hauck Lightning Pedal Go-Kart

Ages: 4-7

The Hauck Lightning Pedal Go-Kart makes it to the #5 spot among kids’ go karts this year.

I love the color scheme of the Lightning—neon green and black. This racer is a pedal-powered ride-on that gives riders complete control over the speed. How fast they can pedal is how fast the Lightning will go. Includes anti-lock brakes, thick-tread all-terrain wheels, and a comfortable, custom bucket seat.

Ages: 1-3

A top-selling favorite among children’s go karts is one for the little ones – Power Wheels Nickelodeon SpongeBob SquarePants Get Set Go! Kart.

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants, of course. This go-kart is a toddler-friendly ride-on with a push button stop-and-go that reaches a max of 2 miles-per-hour. Best on hard surfaces, like pavement, but works on grass.

Next up on the list — Berg Toys Junior Buddy Go-Kart.

This pedal-powered ride-on is a must-have for racing beginners. The wheels are oversized with moderate-tread for pavement and grass ridin’. I love the orange and black color scheme. It reminds me of fun stuff on Halloween!

The Razor Jr Lil Crazy Cart is another top go kart for the little ones this year.

Another go-kart from Razor. The Lil Crazy is a toddler-sized go-to that reaches spinning speeds of 2 miles-per-hour with a wheel and push-button controls. It drifts, twirls, swirls, and spins in all directions, leaving kiddos dizzy with giddy, giggling joy.

Next for the 2017 picks – Hauck Thunder II Go Kart.

The Thunder is a pedal-powered, caged go-kart with race-style gadgets, a simply comfortable bucket seat, and a 3-point steering mechanism. Orange and black (another Halloween-ish color scheme) makes it an awesome choice. And the wheels are treaded for extra-hold grips.

And — the final pick of the top ten go-karts for kids this year is the Razor Ground Force Electric.

I love how brands name their go-karts after cool stuff (usually powerful elements in nature). The Electric is a chain-driven ride-on with a silent motor, super-slick wheels, and a high-flying Razor flag. It runs on a single charge for 45 minutes with max speeds of 12 miles-per-hour. Lovin’ the chrome!
